Daniel Watson's curator insight, October 10, 2:14 AM

 

All of the Search Engine Optimisation work that you do for your website can be wasted if you have an outdated view of what works and what doesn't. These days the psychology of your audience plays a huge part in how your site will rate for searches conducted by your ideal clients/customers. This is a great article for all business owners trying to optimise their websites to rank higher in search engine results (numbers 4 and 5 are key elements for success).

Teaching Digital Literacy: Resources to Help Students Validate Online Information

Teaching Digital Literacy: Resources to Help Students Validate Online Information | ED 262 Research & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
Digital Literacy is a term that is growing ever more popular among those teaching our 21st Century Learners. Also known as Information Literacy, Digital Literacy is an important component of what is known as Digital Citizenship. It is a skill that many children and adults grapple with. One of my favorite memes on the topic is right here!

We all chuckle, but then the conversation kind of fizzles out from there. It isn't that we shouldn't believe anything that we find online, it is that we need to be critical of the validity of what we find.

Most Students Don’t Know When News Is Fake, Stanford Study Finds

Most Students Don’t Know When News Is Fake, Stanford Study Finds | ED 262 Research & Resource Skills | Scoop.it
More than two out of three middle-schoolers couldn’t see any valid reason to mistrust a post written by a bank executive arguing that young adults need more financial-planning help. And nearly four in 10 high-school students believed, based on the headline, that a photo of deformed daisies on a photo-sharing site provided strong evidence of toxic conditions near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan, even though no source or location was given for the photo.

The Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Scannable Content

The Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Scannable Content | ED 262 Research & Resource Skills | Scoop.it


'Rarely do people read content from beginning to end. Maybe it’s because of our “microwave,” instant gratification culture. 


Maybe it’s because millions of other articles are vying for people’s attention. Or maybe it’s because reading from screens takes about 25% longer than reading from paper. 


Research has even indicated that readers experience an unpleasant feeling when reading online text. 


 Whatever the case may be, it’s crucial to take the right approach when writing for online readers—a new approach.


Now, I have a better idea of how people interact with written content online. What you’re viewing right now is a result of my research and testing. It’s about scannable content'.

Moving from Digital Portfolios to a domain of one’s own

Moving from Digital Portfolios to a domain of one’s own | ED 262 Research & Resource Skills | Scoop.it

Digital portfolios are personalized, active, and multimodal. These can take the form of a personalized, web-based collection of work and reflections used to demonstrate key skills and accomplishments for a variety of contexts and time periods.

 

In an earlier post, I detailed the elements of a digital portfolio, and described the benefits for students and educators. This post will dig a bit deeper into the research and theory to identify possibilities for identity development and supporting literacy practices in the construction of digital portfolios. Specifically, we’ll look at student agency, developing identity, and moving to a domain of one’s own.

I have given up my print subscription to various news and magazines sites in favor of their digital platforms. This fits with my desire to have the most up to date news, travel-friendly options, and to keep a lower eco footprint. However, what has sprung up and been the topic of much debate is the prevalence of fake news, especially on social media platforms such as Facebook.
